Karma stars are awarded to people who have helped the GTA community in some way or another.

If you never get any for anything then don't be sad. It's just a small .gif under your name.

Thanks.. You cut me real deep, Shrek.

You get them by aiding the forum cause.

Karma stars are awarded to those who help out the community in one way or another, such as posting tutorials/guides etc. or generally helping out such as reporting posts, making decent posts etc. However if you post something just to boost your name, or in the hunt for karma then don't expect to get any. Karma stars are awarded from your help towards the community (in most cases), all in all just be a decent member.

Lack of karma stars don't state you aren't a good member though, there are plenty of good members around here without karma. Example;

Apparently I no-longer have karma because the administration team took it away from me, after several wrongdoings. Despite popular belief that would be incorrect.

You get them for sexual favors. I got mine back in the GTAF-Meetup of 1972 when we were all into playing as furries. GT-1 made a handsome squirrel, and I still recieve emails about my wonderful donkey suit.

All in all, we had a lot of fun that summer. More fun than the Army, I'll say! And no one went short on sodium or protein the entire trip.

One of my stars was for "general helpfulness" and I received that less than a year after I signed up. You do not need to do a whole bunch of guides about things that don't need them or any of the ubiquitous and obvious karma stunts (although if you have a good guide or something, bring it - my other star was indeed for a SA guide). You can be formally commended for the GTAF staff just for being you if you present yourself well. And even if you never do, doesn't mean you are a poor member.

The point is, it's never too early to start being a quality participant here on GTAF and get recognized. People who have been here less than a year have already picked up karma or have been accepted into an official gang. And for some, the latter is the greater acheivement which unlike karma can take years of time here to experience. I for one would trade my two stars for one certain non-star-shaped pip under my name...I really like that one under Runestoner's and EmoPat's, for instance, and they don't even have any karma stars.

Well that's a good way to remove karma from someone else(like that guy up there who had one of his removed for being a tosser in the gaming forum), but I'm not really sure if you can gain any karma that way. I would know, I've done quite a lot of reporting myself and helped do things such as sniff out prev. banned members, but I never recieved or expected karma for it, I just wanted to help clean the place out...
